Restaurant Hans Olding Quartet

HOQ
HANS OLDING QUARTET har spelat och turnerat land och rike under de senaste åren. Debutskivan ”No Space” (El Dingo Records/Plugged) kom 2008 och i februari 2011 släpptes ”No Place Like Home” och fick mycket fina recensioner i svensk och internationell press. Gruppen består av fyra av sin generations hårdast arbetande musiker och har mutat in ett personligt, samtida sound som rör sig utanför jazzens mittfåra. En god känsla för jazzens innersta väsen är dock ständigt närvarande i deras musik som bottnar i genomarbetade kompositioner och ett nästan intuitivt samspel. Melodisk, hårdsvängande, samtida jazz med ena foten i traditionen, den andra i samtiden och blicken stadigt riktad in i framtiden!

Hans Olding är en av Sveriges mest välkända jazzgitarrister och har gjort skivor och turnerat runt i världen med egna grupper under de senaste tio åren. Han har även hörts med internationellt kända musiker som Daniel Humair (FRA), Francesco Bearzatti (ITA), Jussi Kannaste (FIN), Karl-Martin Almqvist, Magnus Broo, Fredrik Norén m.fl. “Olding's playing and writing is solid on every tune, which were all composed and arranged by the versatile guitarist...The ensemble that Olding has assembled for this recording does a superb job of interpreting the guitarist’s compositions while interjecting their own voices into the mix… No Space is a strong outing for Olding. It is a showcase for his strong compositional and arranging techniques, as well as his ability to lead an ensemble by example in every note he plays.” - Matthew Warnock, All About Jazz US

Linus Lindblom, saxofon, är en av de starkast klingande unga rösterna på den svenska jazzscenen och tilldelades 2009 Sveriges Radios utmärkelse Jazzkatten som ”Årets nykomling”. Han är en personlig musiker med stor integritet och ett lyriskt, helt eget sound.

Pär-Ola Landin, bas, kan höras på skiva och scener i och utanför Sverige i en mängd olika konstellationer. Han är en av Sveriges mest efterfrågade basister och har redan en diger meritlista. En genommusikalisk, lyhörd och hårdsvängande basist med stor rutin.

Chris Montgomery, trummor, är västkustens unga slagverkssensation, flitigt aktiv i grupper som Priming Orchestra, Our Park, The Beginners m.fl. En av de största talangerna i den nya vågen av unga svenska jazzmusiker och som redan gjort sig ett namn runt om på landets klubbar. Vid särskilt festliga tillfällen gästas gruppen även av Mattias Ståhl, vibrafon som också spelar på gruppens senaste skiva, eller Carl Bagge, piano.

HANS OLDING QUARTET has toured and played northern Europe since the start in 2001. The Quartet received very good press for their debut album ”No Space” (El Dingo/Plugged MD) and the follow up "No Place Like Home" was released in February 2011.

The group consists of four of its generation’s most hard working musicians in Sweden and has created its own, unique space in European jazz, with a personal and contemporary sound, outside of the main stream. A great sensibility for the inner being of jazz is always present in their music, which is based in thorough compositional work and an almost intuitive interplay. Melodic, hard swinging, contemporary jazz with one foot in the tradition, the other in our time and with the aim steadily fixed into the future! Hans Olding is one of Sweden’s most active and acclaimed jazz guitarists. He has been heard on stages around Europe and the rest of the world during the last ten years. Well known musicians he has played with includes; Daniel Humair (FRA), Francesco Bearzatti (ITA), Mikko Innanen (FIN), Karl-Martin Almqvist (SWE) and others. He has also received numerous grants for performance and composition.

Linus Lindblom, saxophone, is one of the clearest sounding voices on the Swedish jazz scene today and was recently awarded the Swedish National Radio’s jazz price as ”Newcomer of the year”. He’s a highly personal musician with a lyrical and energetic sound.

Pär-Ola Landin, bass, can be heard on several recordings and on scenes around Sweden in different well-established bands. He’s one of the most ‘in demand’ bass players of his generation in Sweden and has a long list of merits. He’s a thoroughly musical bassist with a rare drive and lots of experience from touring all over the world.

Chris Montgomery, drums, is probably the strongest and most exciting drummer emerging from the Swedish west coast. He is one of his generation’s biggest talents, playing regularly with top creative Swedish jazz groups all over Europe. Singers, Rigmor Gustafsson and Jeanette Lindström, as well as the Bohuslän Big Band are some of his recent employers.
